Abstract : This investigation of the radar cross-section of a finite cone can be divided into three areas. First, the exact solution for the scattering of a plane electromagnetic wave by a finite cone is presented. Rigorous electro magnetic theory is used in the solution, and no approximations are made. Secondly, methods of obtaining numerical results for the radar cross-section from the analytic solution by using a digital computer are discussed. The third area is a presentation and discussion of the numerical results obtained.
